Flora Designers of Taupo¯
Last month we were tutored by visiting tutor Rosalie Barr on ‘Eastern Influence’. Everyone used a pin holder in a shallow type container, before arranging an interesting branch, stick, etc, and a few flowers and leaves into the pin holder. Some stones, moss, etc, were then used to cover the pin holder and water added to the design. Although the designs were all quite different they were most attractive. Joyce Ranger won the Most Popular Vote. On Saturday, October 27, our club is hosting the Waikato Area Competitions and Designer of the Year Competition at St Paul’s Union Church. A talented floral designer, Lesley Campbell of Hawke’s Bay, will demonstrate in the afternoon, followed by afternoon tea. The public are very welcome to attend from 1pm to view all the competition designs, sales table and raffles before the demonstration begins at 1.30pm. Admission is $15. Our club night is on Monday, October 15 at St Paul’s Union Church Hall at 7pm, when our tutor Elaine Brighouse will appraise our practice designs for the competitions. All welcome. Non-member fee: $5. For further information, please phone Joyce on 377 1433 or Elaine 378 9851.
